I have several small LLC clients who flip houses and/or buy and rent single family homes. They don't need a CT Tax Registration Number to do these activities. ProSeries REQUIRES that a CT Tax Reg Number be entered or you get an error message. Has anyone else encountered this? Is there a work-around? Enter all zeroes?
No, Business Entity Tax no longer exists. I called and spoke to a DRS employee today and verified that these LLCs do NOT need CT Tax Registration Numbers. I'm going to enter 10 zeroes in the field for the CT Tax Registration Number and see if it'll let me e-file.
Partnership. They don't engage in any activities subject to sales tax. They have no employees. You use the Federal Tax ID to pay the PE Tax (it says so right on the website). There is no longer a Business Entity Tax. The question arose this year because I'm getting an error message in ProSeries for NOT entering a CT Tax Registration Number. I've been able to file in prior years without the number. Like I said, I spoke to a DRS rep and they confirmed that clients of this type (two people who jointly own a rental property) do NOT need a CT Tax Reg #.
My clients have same situation like yours, they don't need tax registration number. Did you try put all zero and What happen?
For business entity tax, are you sure there is no more. I was reading the instruction on their department of revenue, it still said every other year LLC needs to pay $250.
